The singer has spoken in favor of Johnny Depp, as Amber Heard alleges him of abuse.
Courtney Love says she would go to war for Johnny Depp
She shared a video on her Instagram saying that the actor saved her life once. He gave Love CPR at a nightclub when she passed out due to an overdose. She said in the video, “I don’t really wanna make judgments publicly, but I just want to tell you that Johnny gave me CPR in 1995 when I overdosed outside The Viper Room with Sal.” She has already talked about the incident before in an interview with The Guardian. She said that she was off her head and decided to go to the Viper Room.
At that time, her daughter Cobain, Frances Bean was three then. She also added, “Johnny, when I was on crack and Frances was having to suffer through that with all these social workers, wrote her a four-page letter that she’s never showed me on her 13th birthday. He didn’t really know me.” Love also told that the Pirates of the Caribbean star sent a limo to her daughter’s school to take her to watch the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
She further added, “He did it a bunch of times. He gave her her own seat with her name on it. I’ve never seen those Pirates movies, but she loved them. You know, she said to me when she was 13, ‘mama, he saved my life.’ And she said it again.”
The singer also spoke about Amber Heard
Apart from talking about Johnny Depp, Courtney Love also talked about Amber Heard. She said, “I’ve been the most hated woman in America. I’ve been the most hated woman in the world, before TikTok, and it’s really a lot of empathy for what that must feel like for Amber. F–k man. Can you imagine how that feels? Jesus.”
But then she also added about Heard misusing a movement. She said, “But if you use a movement for your own personal gain, and you inhabit queer feminist intersectional spaces, and you abuse that moment, then I hope justice gets served whatever it is.”
